BirdsFan.com - A Philadelphia Eagles...:
After opening the season with two dominant quarters, the Eagles defense seem to have showed their true colors over the last six quarters. Against the Redskins, they had a large lead and shifted towards a “let’s try not to blow this” mentality. Against the Chargers, they were horrific from beginning to end. Just how bad were they on Sunday? I think this tweet sums it up pretty well.
#Eagles defense allowed 539 yards yesterday. It's the most they've allowed at home since 11/11/62, when Vince Lombardi's #Packers got 628.

Although I currently find the entire Eagles defense appalling, my biggest concern has to be a secondary that allowed Philip Rivers to throw for 419 yards and seemingly couldn’t step up on just about any third down situation.
I think one of the things that people are overlooking is the injury to Bradley Fletcher. If he plays in Sunday’s game, it would have allowed Brandon Boykin to play in the slot wh...

Today the Philadelphia Eagles found themselves a steal in Roc Carmichael from the Houston Texans practice squad. A fourth-round pick in 2011, Carmichael missed his entire rookie year due to a shoulder injury and never recovered. He’ll add depth to the Eagles secondary with Brandon Hughes (hamstring) on short-term IR and can help on special teams. […]
Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly is still a rookie. While his offense looks like it could stick, he has coached only two games at the NFL level. Because of that, Chip is still learning. In the fourth quarter of the Eagles’ loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, Michael Vick was drilled by Chargers […]
The entire premise of Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense is all about offensive numbers. How many offensive snaps can be called, how quickly can the offense return to the line, and most importantly, how quickly can the offense produce points. Chip Kelly has the personnel to run the up-tempo offense […]The post Philadelphia Eagles Defense Takes the Up Tempo Out of Chip Kelly appeared...
Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly wants to quicken his already high octane offense by helping out the officials. It's common for a player to be tackled and just toss or roll the ball, forcing the referee to go chasing it. Well, that time the referees is chasing is time Kelly wants to run more plays, so he's telling his players, 'give the ref the damn ball.'
San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers looked to have underwent sort of a rebirth to relevancy with the team's big win against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Rivers picked apart the Eagles' D to precision in their thrilling 33-30 win. Harking back to the days when the Chargers were a formidable playoff team, they racked up 539 total yards, the most since 1985.

Chip Kelly is learning the NFL rule book on the job.
The do-it-his-way coach didn't think he could use a timeout to allow a banged-up Michael Vick to stay in the game during an important moment in the Philadelphia Eagles' 33-30 loss to San Diego Chargers to Sunday.
Upon further review, Kelly learned he was wrong.
''That's on me. I didn't think we could...
Listen, if someone wanted to pay me to say I brushed my hair with a stick, I’d take the money. Michael Vick is no fool, he has only some many years left in the NFL and after that bankruptcy, he needs to get all the money as he can.

Eagles 30, Chargers 33, Sunday, September 15, 2013
After week one, we were all like: “Hey! Maybe the Eagles D isn’t too bad!”
Turns out, the Skins are just that bad this year.
Stud of the week: Michael Vick, clearly, who had a career day with 428 yards, two thrown TDs, one run TD, and no turnovers. DJax had a good day, too, as did Shady, with a career receiving day...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via ProFootballTalk.com, the Philadelphia Eagles almost acquired Colin Kaepernick in a trade with the 49ers that would have sent a second round pick to San Francisco prior to the 2012 NFL draft.
Because Alex Smith had a strong year in 2011, after Kaepernick had been drafted, the 49ers reportedly were willing to move him. Schefter says the Eagles...
Chargers wideout Malcom Floyd took a huge hit from DeMeco Ryans on the first play from scrimmage in the second half and was taken off the field by stretcher.Fantasy Spin:Floyd had already totaled five catches for 102 yards in the first half. It appears to be a head or neck injury.
The San Diego Chargers proved to the NFL that there’s an answer to Chip Kelly’s bewildering offense…keep his defense on the field. The Eagles defensive struggles have left them with the second worst pass-defense in the NFL; second to the Chargers. With a thinning secondary, the situation in Philadelphia is reaching critical mass.
The Eagles secondary, youthfully untested, has...
